Well,
The BPL ( no longer the EPL) is about to start on August 11th. Time for some predictions.

Top 4

ManU..retooled, defensively weak. Rio is a liability.
Chelsea...Could be off to a poor start with so many injuries.
Arsenal...I am a pragmatic gooner, although looked very good in the preseason. Diaby to breakout season.
Liverpool...Alot of new additions, tremendous pressure this year. Could take time to gel.

Top Scorer:
Van Persie. That goal aginst Inter was pure magic. Now that TH14 is gone, RVP is gonna shine. By my accounts the most gifted striker in the BPL.

Please feel free to add anyother predictions you want.

My predictions:

- Meltdown at Chelski, Mourinho gets sacked, the max they'll get is direct qualification to the UEFA-Cup and maybe FA Cup quater finals.
- Manchester United will once again be the team to beat. Arsenal and Liverpool may have a hard time, but still, the top three for this season will be ManU, Arsenal and Liverpool (not necessarily in that order). Hopefully it's either Arsenal or Liverpool winning the Premiership.
- The fourth Champions League spot will be decided between Everton and Tottenham Hotspur (if there will still be a fourth spot for England, should Platini go ahead and impose his "reform" for the Champions League, taking spots away from top leagues such as the Serie A, Primera División, Premier League and Bundesliga, in favour of "weaker" leagues).
- The decision on who wins the Premiership will be on the final matchday. This could become one of the most exiting Premier League seasons in years.
- Robin van Persie will be the top scorer.
- Sunderland will get relegated along with West Ham United. No idea about who'll be the final candidate for relegation.

Hey hey, dont be too hard on Aston Villa! WrenchBender, im sure we will finish higher than our blue rivals, and SiouxATC, what, 15th for Villa? That sucks man! You can do better than that!

Anywho, I think Arsenal may struggle to hold off challengers for 4th, spurs etc, even with Van Persie firing. I hope Liverpool can challenge domestically, Torres has everything, including a ton of pace, so hopefully he wont flop ala Moreintes!

Sorry bud! But I think the Villans are going to tank this year! I agree this year will be a lot of fun to watch. Here's to Charlton Athletic coming back up! I can dream cant I?

Not going to happen. I believe that its Chelsea's year. The start of the season will be tough with Terry out, but they should be in form mid to end of September and theyll be on top of the table until the end. F.A. Cup finals again.

I have to agree with the Mackems getting relegated. Just as long as Newcastle isn't joining them.

After all of the changes this off-season, I'm not really sure what to expect from NUFC this season. I do have faith in Sam since he got Bolton back up in the Premiership and kept them up there and I think he could finally stabilize things at St. James Park after the silliness the past few seasons with the coaching staff. The rumors of Kevin Keegan rejoining the club in an executive role are quite interesting as well. And the deal to send Dyer to West Ham is still simmering as well. The deal that brought in Alan Smith from Man U. could definitely pay dividends, especially if Michael Owen's injury problems persist. I'd be happy with a top 10 finish this season.

The title of this thread is weird, i thought it was something to do with another sport, not English football.

Predictions? Even as a optimistic Gunner i can't see us winning the title, we can definitely challenge though, it would be criminal if we let Man Utd and Chelski have another free ride. Robin Van Persie is crucial to us, if he along with Adebayor and Eduardo stays fit then Thierry Henry will not be missed. All this talk of Spurs "overtaking" us because we sold Henry and are in "crisis" is laughable, Spurs will end 5th or 6th because they don't have the consistency and they never beat the big teams.

Liverpool will not win the title, they almost have a new team, no one knows how long it will take them to gel and work as a unit, but they'll be up there.



In Arsene we trust!!

To be honest, I haven't even given a thought on the fate of Newcastle United. But for me, if Michael Owen doesn't get injured again, and the team starts giving 125%, they could maybe get to the UEFA-Cup. Otherwise, they'll be in the grey league midfield.

Damn...

Anyone of you heard of this? Sport1 in Germany is reporting that Bernie Ecclestone wants to buy out Arsenal FC once the purchase ban of the club expires in 2008.  Wow!

Please, anyone but Bernie Ecclestone! Bernie already ruined F1, and I don't want to see him ruin Arsenal as well.  Angry

Good to see NUFC give a 3-1 drubbing to Bolton. I could have listened to the game on Sirius Satellite Radio, but forgot to check the schedule of matches they were broadcasting (Tomorrow, they've got Birmingham City @ Chelsea [Sirius has an exclusive deal with Chelsea and will air every game {they also have a similar deal with Celtic and the Champions League}] and Reading @ Man U.). Hopefully I'll remember to catch the Newcastle-Aston Villa match next Saturday.
